Moreton Island

It’s Australia day (Jan 26), the time when most Australians take some time off from work, and head to the beach, fire up the BBQ, or just sit back and relax with the family having a few quite ones. My wife and I decided to join our friends on Moreton Island.
Queensland has a number of islands off the coast which are easy to get to, some of them have bridges so you can drive to them, others like Moreton Island have no bridges, and no roads, so it is a 4WD only island only accessible by ferry.

The ferry doesn’t berth at a pier on Moreton Island, instead, it just stops at the beach, in the sand. As I said 4WD only.

The beach above is actually classified as a road. Police patrol up and down it on the quad bikes. Someone actually said the were breathalyzed.

These pictures were taken towards the end of the day, there was a lot more people about earlier. Plenty of fish and thing to see, but watch out for the current, it will take you down the beach quickly.

It was a great day, and certainly a place I would come back to.
